Omeet at Battle Creek Set by Gediminas, Vet by DaveS
A little windy at the park today. Decent temps in the sun, but chilly in the shade for sure.
Ran a clean course and felt pretty strong. Only had a few minor errors in route choice and control finding, probably lost about 1 minute total in that regard, otherwise the only way to improve the time would be to run faster.
Parks like Battle Creek are a little easier to nav in, never having to worry about running off the map and having a ton of catching features to work off, but many trail errors can be made and minor parallel mistakes or tricky control locations can lose time here and there. I was happy to avoid most of those issues today.
Always great to see so many folks out for a spring meet. With the three JROTC crews there, I bet we pulled over 100 racers outside today.
